Frostbite!? (!)

I went apartment hunting today! And actually seem to have gotten somewhere with it.

I found this nifty apartment right off 9th Avenue, that HAS A BAR IN IT, and a hallway that has got to be 15 feet long. I want the hallway just so I can stencil the lyrics to "Five and a Half Minute Hallway" on the wall. It would be AWESOME.

Also, did I mention IT HAS A BAR?

It's also six blocks from work. It is shorter to walk to work than my walk to the subway right now. ROCK.

But I am not getting my hopes up too much. Well, I am. But I shouldn't be, because NYC rentals? Insane. It's also contingent on whether the mgmt. company will be willing to put in a dishwasher, because I'm not taking another place without one.

So, fingers crossed. It's lovely location-wise and lovely space-wise.

On the OTHER HAND, I went out in the nor'easter to look at apartments, which means I was walking around in ABSOLUTE TORRENTS FOR FIVE HOURS. Jesus. It was insane. I am giving the agent my firstborn or something. Wow. Um, I think I said to quizzicalsphinx that I wanted to rent an Ark instead of an apartment by the time I was through doing that.

I had to run my feet under warm water for about 20 minutes to get ANY feeling back in them. It was insane. Everything was wet. I have never been so wet in my life except possibly for being under water, and I am not sure.

On to more important things:

I pretty much iconned everything anyone said in chat tonight. I'm posting them up so the people who want them can snag them. I doubt anyone who does not know what they mean would want them, though, they're mostly up for the people who were in chat and might have missed them. Comment if you take, please!







Damn, I should be in bed.

ASDGFFDGKLJSKIT COMES WITH TWO BARSTOOLS.

::runs away to sleep for real::

YOUR ICONS ARE WIN. I took about 3/4 of them, if that's alright.

You said about 3/4 of them! So of course it's all right!

*sniffle* NOthign I say ever gets made into the icony goodness.

Take that up with the serious icon-makers! I was just being a dick in the chat I was in!

Besides, you don't want my icons! They suck.

i was in NYC today and holy crap. in sheepshead bay the wind was so bad we gave up and called a car service to get to the train station. in the city proper, at least, it wasn't so windy.

up in saratoga, we've got sleet. x_X

Oh, yuck. Yeah, it wasn't too windy, but the deluging was delugy.


seriously, this weather has been ridiculous, especially when it was so fabulous all saturday. i THINK it just stopped raining, but it was seriously pouring for twenty hours straight.

good luck with the apartment searching!

Haha. You said it stopped. Not outside my window.

And I got 'Salad. Dressing.' And I can't decide which others yet!

One is correct! One is no!

CAN YOU GUESS WHICH?

Also, I finally got Skype.

*basks in the strangely glorious weather of Liverpool*

WTF LIVERPOOL HAS GOOD WEATHER FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY?

WHAT DID YOU DO, MAKE AN EVIL WEATHER MACHINE AND SEND US YOURS?

I am not an alcoholic by any means but I have always wanted a bar wherever I choose to call home just for the sake of having one. Good luck with that place, it sounds like an upgrade all around. Hopefully they can put in the dishwasher for you. Otherwise I'll send you a stack of paper plates.

Hahaha, thanks! I already have a stack of paper plates. The problem is it DOES NOT HELP WITH POTS AND PANS OR MIXING BOWLS OR OTHER IMPLEMENTS OF COOKING.

Which makes me sad and/or ordering takeout.

That apartment sounds great! When I was 4 my parents had an apartment like that in New Hampshire. The bar was pretty badass.

I am v. excited! I think I got all the paperwork in!

That was a truly epic chat. EPIC.

I ganked a couple to relieve the icon dearth my El-Jay was experiencing. :) That is one chat that will go down in infamy.

AND IT KICKED ME OUT FOREVER AND EVER :-(
